    Is it possible, if I had two TV's, to stream to each other? I am considering buying another unit for the kids basement tv. That way I could sync the kids movies to that one from their computer and then sync the other unit from my computer. With the scenario, I was wondering that if the kids wanted to watch a movie from the basement unit on the upstairs unit, would I be able to stream the TV just like it was another computer? I realize I could stream from the kids computer, but I would have to have it on all the time. It would be nice, since TV is always on, to stream from that. Sorry for rambling.

    You can't stream from one AppleTV to the other.

    But you could point both AppleTV's to 1 computer if that helps. That way 1 computer is providing content for both which may or may not be what you are wanting depending on the content.

    You could also sync all the kid's content to their appleTV itself so they don't need a computer on.

    You might be able to do this using the nitoTV plugin by mounting ATV1 as a network drive to ATV2. Probably not the easiest thing, though.
